Getting mental health into paediatric training- we need your help!

Dear PMHA members,

One of our main aims is to integrate training into the emotional and behavioural aspects of paediatrics into mainstream training. We’ve had great success at the curriculum level, but we need to make sure that the competences that are sppecified actually get assessed and trained for.

As exec members, we are doing what we can. but there is one area where we need your help. Please volunteer for your local MRCPCH question-writing day, and ensure that the questions set reflect the rich emotional, social and behavioural content of the curricula, rather that the narrow biological focus that is more traditional.

for more details keep an eye out locally, or see http://www.rcpch.ac.uk/training-examinations-professional-development/quality-and-standards/question-writing-and-scenario-1
